It began with the discovery of a ceramic sculpture which I acquired in a "special" art studio for $20 (cheap). The artist described it as a cat, but this was no ordinary cat. This cat had legs, and a tail, and ... eyes, I think. In describing it to a research colleague, I said, "It's as if you sent a cat through some sort of alien transformer and it came out .... Different." My colleague heard the capital D in Different, and we simultaneously achieved enlightenment. We began our research: to locate and identify these rare and unusual objects which hint at alien interference.
